I've read all the high praise, and mostly I do think it's a worthwhile product, probably better than sandpaper in my limited experience... But on the handful of guitars where I've used it, I can never get the micro-meshed area back to the original finish. It's always cloudy and/or has very fine scratches from some of the grits. Two issues here: I assume the scratches are my fault. Maybe I'm applying too much pressure with the low grits. So with each new project I'll try to go lighter but it still happens. The unfortunate thing is that I can't see 'em until I'm up to 8000 or so. I've tried wet and tried dry. Wet gives me a nice feel, as if I am doing a very steady/even job, but I can't see what I'm doing. Dry loads up the pads a bit quicker but I have been getting better results with dry. Any tips? Or is it just necessary to use a polishing compound after micromesh?
